RBD Flannel Showcase Blog Tour: Toddler Girl’s Nightgown with Free Pattern

Happy Friday Everyone. I am so excited to be part of Riley Blake’s Flannel Showcase Blog Tour! The tour features different projects using stunning flannels from Riley Blake Designs.  I fell in love with this  gorgeous Rainbow Hexi and thought it would look pretty as a nightgown for my little girl. The material is really soft, cuddly and warm, making it perfect for the upcoming winter months. The free pattern is for toddler size 3T-4T. You can make it as long or short as you want it.  I think I may end up making a few of these for Mila with some other flannels from Riley Blake.

The neck is a simple elastic stretch fit so you don’t have to worry about doing a closure. It’s easy so that your little one can put it on and take it off all by her self. I decided to pin an accent ribbon on mine to make it extra girly.

The sleeves are made into a gathered puff which gives it a cozy and comfortable feel.

I decided to do a gathered ruffle on the bottom to make it twirl and match the gathered puff sleeve.

Your Supplies

1 yard flannel-(Rainbow Hexi used in this tutorial)

16″ 1/2″ elastic

12″ 1/4″ elastic

5″ ribbon for bow

You can download the free pattern HERE. The pattern is for a normal size 3T-4T. My daughter is 3 and this fits her a bit loose like nightgowns should be. You can scale the pattern up or down about 10-20% if you want it a bit more snug or looser. For this pattern, I used a 1/2″ seam allowance which is already built into the pattern.

Let’s start

The pattern for the front and back are for the top pieces only. You will have to measure how long you want the dress to be to get the desired length.

Once you have all your pieces. It’s time to put the sleeves on the front and back pieces. With right sides together, sew the sleeves on the front bodice.

Next, sew the sleeves to the back bodice.

Next, let’s add the ruffle to the bottom. Cut about 30″ of 3″ wide flannel. Fold under 1/4″ and then another 1/4″ for the hem. Iron down. Gather the other top edge. Pull and fit on the front bottom bodice. Sew right sides together. Repeat for the back bodice.

Let’s move onto the sleeves. Fold down 1/4″ and then about 2″. Iron and hem. Take about 6″ of 1/4″ elastic and stitch it on the top of your hem while pulling the elastic. The elastic should be pulled as you are sewing until you reach the end. Repeat for other side.

Next, sew from the end of the sleeves all the way down the side of the dress. Repeat for the other side.

Create a casing on the neck line by folding in 1/4″ and then again about 3/4″. Sew all the way around leaving about 2″ to thread your elastic. Thread elastic and sew the opening close.

  1. Such a sweet little nightgown in that beautiful RBD flannel! Thanks for sharing the pattern!

  2. What a cute little nightgown and perfect timing as well. Thank you for such a great tutorial. One of my boys and his family are living back home with us for awhile and we bought his girlfriend a nice sewing machine for Christmas last year. She's been learning to sew while living here. Or, I should say re-learning and learning things she didn't know with my help. Just last week she mentioned she'd like to make some nightgowns for her daughter, my 2 yr old (will be 3 yrs old in Feb) granddaughter so this is just perfect and even about the right size too. I have tons of cheap flannel she can use to practice on until I get some of the super cute Riley Blake flannels. LOVE the hexi flannel.

    Thank you again for the great tutorial and pattern as well.

  24. The process of writing and reading is the bedrock and foundation of the studies and education.. The values of social sciences are learned and improved.

  25. I'm a very inexperienced seamstress. I can't match the bottom pattern of the sleeve to the top part. The top part lines are wider than the bottom. Can you advise which side to match and which one to adjust?

  26. Where are the instructions in the download? I cant see my computer from my machines. Not as I expected.

  27. All pattern pieces show up on the preview when I download, but only the back and a tiny piece of the front will print. Any ideas?

    My granddaughter is 5-1/2 and am SO happy to have a little girl to sew for again! Her mother and my other daughter and son grew up MUCH too fast!!! Ivy will love this nightgown this winter. Being that it's 112*-120* currently here in Arizona, I have LOTS of time to sew LOTS of nighties before she needs them!! HA!
